Rebecca Foster

Visiting Faculty

Rebecca Foster’s cross-disciplinary practice employs printmedia, drawing, photography, and discreet performance. Her work investigates collective memory, language, historical archives, and the ephemeral quality of images in news media—frequently referencing events, places, and figures that feature prominently in our shared cultural consciousness. Trained as a printmaker, Foster has collaborated on the production of a limited edition, hand-sewn Louise Bourgeois artist’s book and worked as an assistant to filmmaker, Anthony McCall. Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, she earned an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2008 and two undergraduate degrees, a BFA in Printmaking and a BA in English Literature, from Cornell University in 2001.  Foster currently teaches courses in printmedia and drawing in the San Francisco Bay Area.
